I am Sharon Martin Republican from Loveland, Colorado. My district is comprised of mostly Non-Hispanic whites with the largest minority being Hispanic. Additionally, my district is an affluent residential district whereby many of the residents are college educated business people. DACA and President Obama’s 2014 executive actions on immigration are policies that attempt to help lawful immigrants avoid deportation, and help then out with attaining citizenship and work visas. So, because my district would benefit from these policies, I support them, and I would vote to fund both policies.
My district can potentially benefit from DACA. DACA will affect my district in a positive way because it is 12% Hispanic, and some of them may be here illegally. If so, then many illegal immigrants in my district are college educated, so they will have met the educational requirement. Additionally, there is no good reason to educate illegal immigrants in America, and after they receive their education, send them back to their home country. Also, because my district is well educated, affluent, and full of business people, we have a lower amount of crime than other districts. So, less people will have felonies or multiple misdemeanors. Furthermore, DACA provides an avenue for some of the illegal immigrants in my district to gain citizenship, and not have to worry about being deported. Therefore, DACA would potentially benefit my district by protecting our educated and skilled immigrants.
On the other hand, DACA could still harm my district in spite of all of those benefits, because itdoes not allow all illegal immigrants to get citizenship. This is because the fact that there are potentially many well educated and business orientated illegal immigrants, that for them to be deported it would harm my district. If the college educated immigrants were to be deported it would negatively impact the companies that rely on them for skilled labor. Consequently, leading to a greater demand for skilled labor, but not enough of a supply of skilled laborers. If those who are educated are also business owners, and are illegal immigrants, if they were deported it would harm the economy of our district because they would lose their business and whoever they employ would lose their jobs. Therefore, DACA could still harm my district, because it only allows some illegal immigrants to get citizenship, instead of all of them.
President Obama’s 2014 executive actions on immigration benefit my district in multiple ways. For starters he will modernize, improve, and clarify visa programs to grow the economy and create jobs. The improvements to the visa program will affect immigrants that are business people and who are skilled laborers. Since my district’s demographics include many immigrants who are educated and business owners, this improvement to the visa program will only benefit my district. Additionally, Obama’s executive actions will promote the naturalization process. Which will make it easier for lawful permanent residents to apply for citizenship and succeed in the process. Therefore, Obama’s executive actions will benefit my district because it will improve the visa program, and make it easier for lawful residents to become citizens.
President Obama’s 2014 executive actions on immigration could also harm my district. By providing protection to deportation of mostly harmless immigrants that want to live in the U.S. in order to benefit themselves and their families, it will undoubtedly protect undesirable immigrants. For example, what if one of the immigrants that is protected from deportation commits a violent act? The fact of the matter is, that even though Obama’s executive actions are mostly beneficial, if enough undesirable immigrants are protected and commit crimes then it would be more harmful than beneficial. Furthermore, if Obama’s executive actions protect too many immigrants from deportation, then that could potentially swell the amount of unskilled and uneducated workers in my district, leading to increased crime. Therefore, Obama’s executive actions on immigration could cause more harm to my district than benefit if it is not implemented properly.
Overall, both the DACA and Obama’s executive actions on immigration appear to be more beneficial to my district, than harmful. Because of this, I would vote to fund both DACA and the executive actions. If DACA were to be implemented, it would prevent many of my constituents from being deported, consequently preventing companies from losing skilled labor, and preventing businesses to be shut down. Similarly, if Obama’s executive actions on immigration were to be implemented it would reform the visa program which would allow the skilled laborers in my district to stay longer, and benefit the economy and create more jobs. Therefore, DACA and Obama’s executive actions should be funded, because both of them are beneficial to my district.
Obama’s executive actions and DACA are policies that wish to prevent deportation of lawful immigrants, and help them gain citizenship or work visas. Because Hispanics are the largest minority in my district, and most immigrants are Hispanic, these policies would benefit my district more than they would harm my district. However, both policies could potentially harm my district by protecting immigrants that can commit violent crimes, even so, I think it is more likely that these policies would lead to more good than harm. So, because these policies benefit my district so much, I would vote to fund both of them.
